First Bibles printed in America, One even Authorized by Congress: "Bible teaching ... is ploughed into the very heart of the race"-FDR - American Minute with Bill Federer
President Franklin D. Roosevelt stated October 6, 1935:
"We cannot read the history of our rise and development as a Nation, without reckoning with the place the Bible has occupied in shaping the advances of the Republic ...
Its teaching ... is ploughed into the very heart of the race.
Where we have been truest and most consistent in obeying its precepts we have attained the greatest measure of contentment and prosperity;
where it has been to us as the words of a book that is sealed, we have faltered in our way, lost our range finders and found our progress checked."
